it worked - thanks Alex - but i like the hover - i just checked the other site i have with the same set up http://palsbar.gr that also looks like sh*t.

So now i have to decide - i think its probably better to remove the hover code.

I'm sad.

Hey Lee,

Yes, definitely looks better in Firefox? Are those images links, would setting the decoration to none take that outline away possibly? Hopefully there will be some other forum members who have some suggestions.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Firefox uses different and higher resolution rendering engines for their browser ......That was one of the reasons I started using it before I ever had a site.....Used to do more art and hung out on deviantart.com looking at images....You can see a difference.

Hey Lee.. I posted shared an idea about this awhile back about how to make your images look good in both FF and IE. I don't know if it's relevant to you, but maybe it's worth checking out: http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/how...

Thanks Littleus - the images you see above are the original intended size 32x32 - in this case i believe its soemthing to do with the fact they are .png's and IE can not handle the opacity CSS. I'm going to have to unfortuanatly take it out... problem is i use it on numerous sites and i really like it.

Yeh IE doesn't know .png exist!. :)..Maybe changing them to .gifs? Though I prefer .png's myself.

Hey Lee

God know my affinity towards PNG images and as I recall I had this happen a few times in the last year and think that I worked around it by making the image into a PNG without the transparent background or changed them into JPG or GIF as the transparent PNG does not like to play well with Hover.

Go to http://www.online-image-editor.com/in...

1) Click "File"
2) Click "Open"
3) Select from the two choices for finding your image then click "Upload"
4) Click "Edit"
5) Hover over "Edit" then "Gif only" (it is a PNG image being worked on but it will work still) then click "Remove transparency"
6) Right click on the image and save to your computer to replace the image that funks out when viewed in IE

Or

1) Click "File"
2) Click "Open"
3) Select from the two choices for finding your image then click "Upload"
4) Click "Edit"
5) Hover over "Edit" then "Gif only" (it is a PNG image being worked on but it will work still) then click "Remove transparency"
6) Hover over "Edit" then "Convert to" then click either JPG or GIF and then Right click on the image and save to your computer to replace the image that funks out when viewed in IE

Additionally, if you don't remove the transparency before and you simply change a PNG to a GIF or JPG it causes some funky image distortions upon the swap. PNG does not play too well with his friends in the playground sometimes mate...

Happy site building
Ed

If you require the transparency you can use this:

1) Click "File"
2) Click "Open"
3) Select from the two choices for finding your image then click "Upload"
4) Click "Edit"
5) Hover over "Edit" then "Gif only" (it is a PNG image being worked on but it will work still) then click "Remove transparency"
6) Hover over "Edit" then "Convert to" then click GIF
7) Hover over "Edit" then "Gif only" then click "Add transparency"
8) Right click on the image and save to your computer to replace the image that funks out when viewed in IE

Hope it works for you mate...
